Editing/Publishing Work & Experience

Freelance Editor & Writer

Developmental, Line, and Copyediting - Freelancing

November 2018 - Present

Because I started freelancing so close to the end of the 2018 year, and because this has been my full-time job throughout all of 2019 to present, I'm opening this section with freelance work. :-D

As a freelancer, I work primarily with first time, self-publishing authors (although I am open to working with more established writers, publishers, and agencies too). It gives me great joy to help writers make their novels as close to their dreams as possible and I look forward to the day each of these fantastic works get published!

Journalism Work & Experience

Blog Writing Continued (2013 - Current)

I am an avid blogger and have been since 2013 when I started The Anime View, and manga/anime/manhwa blog that began as a place to share the images I was collecting from my favorite shows and reads. Since then I've held a number of blogs under different usernames until today where I limit myself to using three accounts: The Anime View, Peggy's Editorial, and PSW Editing. Peggy's Editorial and PSW Editing are linked blogs with similar content. The best way to describe them is as one blog with two pages. Peggy's Editorial is where I write about my industry, personal interests or stories. While PSW Editing is where I am a creative writer and re-blog the sources, inspirations, and information that I find most useful.

The Anime View, however, is an expanding blog that is quickly transforming from one fan gushing about anime to a resource for information, conversation, and industry insight. I've officially become an "Editor-in-Chief" to the website as new contributors have been added to our transforming blog. In the next year or so, we hope to launch as an official, digital-publication!

Updates RegularlyStarted in 2013

The Anime View is a blog I've run passionately since 2013.

What started as a collection of reposted images from my favorite series or latest anime/manga consumption has recently changed into a place of analytical review, theorizing, and adoration of both mainstream and underappreciated comic and animated media.

Currently, many posts have centered on manhwa and other Korean publications shifting away from the heavy Japanese influences of the blog's origins. However--don't let that fool you--there is still plenty of content focused on Japanese and American releases on the blog with more coming soon!

See you all on the blog!

Updates Every Saturday, except Holiday WeekendsStarted in 2018

Updates RegularlyStarted in 2016

Peggy's Editorial started as a makeshift digital notebook, created as an off-shoot of PSW Editing (formerly known as "Crestpha"). Having known that editing was my passion s freshman year of college, and finding some aspects of my earlier education lacking the professional focus I wanted, the goal of the blog was to gather links, resources, and notes I could refer back to and easily share with others that voiced interested.

Over time, the blog grew and, as a double English Major working towards degrees in Creative Writing and English Literature, I thought the growing professional experience and notes I was taking in and out of class might be beneficial to other future/new writers, editors, and publishing professionals outside of my circle of friends.

Since its start, the blog has gone through a number of changes--from several renaming ceremonies, a platform move, and varied content shifts to what it is today: A resource for new to publishing professionals whether they're writers, editors, marketers or something else.

Tutoring

Freelance Work

Freelance Tutoring

January 2020 - Present

I did a lot of tutoring in high school and at the start of my college career since teaching others often helped solidify the information within my own mind while studying in school. After college, I've primarily worked as a freelance editor and writer, and had very little interest in returning to teaching. However, as I decided to begin preparing for PhD program applications, I've realized how important teaching is to my goal of continuing in academia. For this reason, I've begun to offer academic services in my freelancing business. One of my first clients was a student looking to enter a credential program post-college. She inspired in me a continued passion for helping high school and college students pursue their academic and professional goals. For this reason, I mostly work with students preparing for college and in adjusting to collegiate academic standards.

I set up a profile on tutors.com in April of 2020 as a means to help get my name out there. In my first month registered on tutors.com I was selected as one of their best tutors of 2020! It's an honor to have been selected and I look forward to the work.

"An Introduction to Writing" Presenting at Sigma Tau Delta International Convention 2020

Presenter at Sigma Tau Delta's International Convention 2020

Sigma Tau Delta's 2020 International Convention which was to be held at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, has officially been canceled. You can read more about the event here.

The panels I was set to present were both at 8:00 AM on Friday and Saturday, C-03 and F-17, respectively.

In panel C-03 I was going to present "An Introduction to Writing," which was originally the introduction to my undergraduate creative writing thesis that I updated during revision and submission to the convention. Instead, you can find a copy of the work under the Creative Writing page of this website (here).

F-17's panel was called "Authorial Intent: Does It Matter In Publishing?" The panel consisted of myself and two other young-to-publishing professionals. We were going to discuss author intent, and its role in the editing process both pre- and post publishing in both traditional and self-publishing platforms. You can read up on what we were planning to discuss in my blog post on the subject here: LINK

Notes 2020 - Published!

I often carry a notebook with me everywhere I go, and I take notes on all sorts of things I find, whether it be from YouTube videos, events I attend, or something else. Since I find them useful, I thought others might too. For that reason, I began publishing notes under my account on Wattpad. Updates are made throughout the year, with each book in the series opening in January and closing in December.

My collected notes from all over 2020.
